I found it to be really handy when she wasn't quite ready to go back to sleep yet, especially if I had things to do and couldn't constantly be holding her.
I'll definitely be investing in another one this time around ...

We bought a McLaren rocker for under $100 and Ava loves it! It vibrates as well which sends her to sleep if needed. She sits in it next to me when I'm on the computer or cooking etc and she can look around. She even watches the tv from it. I couldn't live without it!

My thinking was a rocker is smoother motion and more natural than bouncing. And lucky, because my daughter is a bit of a chucky baby. Guess it runs in the family as i was a chucky baby when i was little and hated a bouncenette.
I use her rocker for when i can't be bothered living in the baby sling. She is getting heavy! So, when i am hanging out the washing, stuff outside, and washing the car etc. Also, the one that i have has a sun shade thing that you can pull up to keep the sun of their faces when it is sunny.
Good luck and i would def recommend a rocker over a bouncenette, but each to their own! Either way they are EXTREMELY!!!
Take care and all the best

I was given a rocker as a baby shower present and my daughter just lives in it. The best pressie i got given. Mine is really paded and reclines aswell. I would definately recommend getting one they are not a waste of money at all.
